about

MY MOTHER (Irene Kelley/Bernie Nelson) demo of a song I wrote years ago with Bernie Nelson. We did this version A cappella. Recorded by: Pat McMakin at Ocean Way studio in Nashville, TN.

lyrics

SHE IS STRENGTH, SHE IS WISE
THE VERY FIRST TO SACRIFICE
THERE IN HER WOMB MY SOUL DID STIR
AND SHE IS MY MOTHER

SHE KNOWS MY HEART, THE JOY AND PAIN
IF AT HER SIDE, OR FAR AWAY
EVER I CRY, ONE SINGLE TEAR
ONE THOUSAND MORE FOR, MY MOTHER

*I AM HER LIVING LEGACY
HER HOPES AND DREAMS LIVE ON IN ME
SO HEAR HER VOICE, AND SEE HER SMILE
I HAVE THE EYES OF, MY MOTHER

ACRES OF ROSES, PAGES OF WORDS
COULD NOT REPAY, THE DEBT I OWE
ON MY BEST DAY, COMPARED TO HER
I’M MERELY HALF OF, MY MOTHER
